Default HID bulbs for fog lights

Just bought my 2013 ES350 last week. I've got the HID headlights, but the fog lights appear to have standard bulbs. Anybody have any recommendations for replacement fog light bulbs that would match the HID headlights?

I too have been trying to replace OEM fog lights and have not been able to. I took out factory bulb and it says H16 on it so I figured easy ,I will order H16 fog light bulb but when i got it. It did not fit, light bulb looks different. So I'm here also trying to see if anyone knows what time of bulb does fit. Here are some pics of the bulb. Hope someone can help.thanks

H16?
I'm installing VLEDS H11 LEDs I had in my ES fog lights in my GS fogs.
Check on that bulb number.

I have the 5K 28 LED version.The 5K is a bit whiter than the 4300K HIDs but a very good match.14 watt bulbs.

On my ES.

There's this newer 5K LED design that produces more lumens for better light output but I don't really know how they look at night.High power 5 watt bulbs.

Hey Guys just wanted to share with everyone looking to replace fog lights on 2013 ES350 bulb type and it is
H11. After trying different type of bulbs I noticed that the headlight bulbs look the same as the fog lights so I tried it on and it fit. Here are some pics of my car with the HID H11 Fog lights.Enjoy

Are you saying the HID headlight bulbs are the same size/fit as fog light bulbs? Are they the number listed in our manuals?? I can't believe it can be that simple!!LOL

Did you buy a relay harness and install it that way? Or did you go all "Commando" and just install bulbs and ballast?
